Coronavirus and USDA Service Centers

USDA Service Centers in North Carolina will continue to be open for business by phone appointment only and field work will continue with appropriate social distancing. While our program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with our producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible. All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with FSA are required to call their Service Center to schedule a phone appointment. In the event a Service Center is not currently available to serve customers on location, producers can receive assistance from the closest alternate Service Center by phone. Learn more at farmers.gov/coronavirus.

Lenders Can Now Apply for New Heirs’ Property Relending Program

 Intermediary lenders -- cooperatives, credit unions, can now apply for loans through the new Heirs’ Property Relending Program (HPRP) through October 29, 2021.Through HPRP, FSA loans up to $5 million at a 1% interest rate to eligible lenders. Then, those eligible lenders will reloan funds to heirs to help resolve title issues by financing the purchase or consolidation of property interests and financing costs associated with a succession plan. Intermediary lenders should apply using the HPRP application form (FSA-2637), which can be submitted to a farm loan chief at a local USDA Service Center.
